Here’s another twist to the classic grilled cheese sandwich:

Grab two slices of the bread of your choice.  For this particular recipe, my family usually uses multi-grain.  Spread pizza sauce on one slice of bread.  Place a piece of cheddar cheese on top of the pizza sauce.  Top with the other piece of bread.  Cook like you would normally make a grilled cheese sandwich.  Cook until the sandwich is golden.
